In the smartphone world, Google has made a name for itself with the Pixel line and its stunning camera quality.
The newest models, the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL, are set to be released soon, but in the meantime, you have plenty of great phones to choose from in the Pixel 3 series. It’s made up of four phones, the 3a and 3a XL, the 3, and the 3 XL.
They differ in price, design, size, and battery life, but the one thing they all boast is a 12.2-megapixel dual-pixel rear camera. Along with this powerful camera comes a host of cool photo-shooting features to make you appreciate it even more. Whether you prefer the budget Pixel 3a, which only costs $300, or want to splurge for the Pixel 3XL, which costs around $900, you get to enjoy the same camera features.
If you’re thinking about buying a Google Pixel 3 phone for its camera alone, we don’t blame you (and you’ll be getting a useful overall phone, too). As a Pixel 3 owner myself, I’ll show you the camera features below that might convince you to make the upgrade.
